How PBS Works Makes HPC Easy to Use

In this video from ISC 2017, Bill Nitzberg from Altair demonstrates how easy it is to launch jobs with PBS Pro. “Altair’s PBS Works workload management suite is used by thousands of organizations worldwide to simplify the administration and use of HPC clusters, clouds and supercomputing environments.”

Univa Powers Formula One and More at ISC 2017

In this video from ISC 2017, Gaétan Didier Head of CFD, Sahara Force India Formula One Racing Team describes how he uses Univa software to manage CFD workloads that simply cannot be done in a wind tunnel. After that, Bill Bryce from Univa describes how the company’s software powers simulation for everything from Formula 1 racing to manufacturing and life sciences.

Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart teams with Rescale

Today Rescale announced that it has become a full member of the Automotive Simulation Center Stuttgart, or asc(s. The asc(s is a non-profit organization promoting high-performance simulation in virtual vehicle development. It consists of automotive OEMs and suppliers, software and hardware manufacturers, engineering service providers, and research institutes. “Rescale is delighted to be accepted as a member of asc(s,” said Wolfgang Dreyer, Rescale’s EMEA General Manager. “asc(s provides a forum for simulation innovation across the European automotive sector and Rescale is enabling scalable, turnkey on-demand high-performance computing, all pivotal for making automotive simulation cost-effective, fast, and efficient. We look forward to working with the members of the association to better understand industry requirements and trends and to push the boundaries of automotive simulation.”

Podcast: Why HPC is Vital at NASA

“At NASA, what we’re doing is we’re really looking at ways of making aircraft more efficient. We’re trying to make them quieter. We’re trying to make them get to cruise altitude faster, which saves the taxpayer or the people who are using airplanes a lot of money, and we look at really complex problems. We look at things like rotorcraft. If you think about how that model looks, it’s a very complex model. What do we do with supercomputing? Pretty much everything across the board.”

Fujitsu Powers KNL Remote Access Program with Intel HPC Orchestrator

In this video from ISC 2017, Tom Krueger from Intel and John Wagner from Fujitsu describe the new KNL Remote Access Program. Now, with the power of Intel HPC Orchestrator, Fujitsu customers can gain access to a small cluster of Intel Xeon Phi processors to test and tune their codes. The freely available cluster environment enables users to participate in activities such as benchmarking, code development, as well as code optimization and validation either using the pre-installed applications or those brought by the user.”

Univa Powers Formula 1 Racing and more at ISC 2017

In this video from ISC 2017, Bill Bryce from Univa describes how the company’s software powers simulation for everything from Formula 1 racing to manufacturing and life sciences. “Univa is the leading innovator in workload management and containerization solutions. Univa’s suite includes the world’s most trusted workload optimization solution enabling organizations to manage and optimize distributed applications, containers, data center services, legacy applications, and Big Data frameworks in a single, dynamically shared set of resources.”

Intel HPC Orchestrator – Now with Altair PBS Pro Inside

In this video from ISC 2017, Bill Nitzberg from Altair describes how PBS Pro adds powerful workload management capabilities to Intel HPC Orchestrator.

Offering PBS Professional as the preferred workload manager for Intel’s HPC Orchestrator provides a comprehensive and reliable workload management product to customers,” said Piush Patel, Vice President, Corporate Development for HPC at Altair. “Altair is committed to the pursuit of exascale computing and the democratization of HPC for organizations to achieve the next great innovations.

TACC to Hosts HPC for Managers Institute in Austin

Today the TACC announced that the first High Performance Computing for Managers Institute will take place September 12-14 in Austin. “With course materials by TACC and the Numerical Algorithms Group, this three-day workshop is specifically tailored to managers and decision makers who are using, or considering using, HPC within their organizations. It is also applicable to those with a real opportunity to make this career step in the future.”

Call for Proposals: HPC4Mfg Program has $3 Million to Boost Supercomputing in Industry

Today the Energy Department announced up to $3 million in available support for manufacturers to use supercomputers at the department’s national laboratories to tackle major manufacturing challenges. The High Performance Computing for Manufacturing (HPC4Mfg) Program enables the use of high performance computing (HPC) expertise and resources for the manufacturing sector to address research and development challenges with HPC and investigate its use to support advanced energy and manufacturing issues. “The technologies adopted as a result of the HPC4Mfg Program can have a significant impact with potential to close the knowledge gaps in the manufacturing and energy industry,” said Mark Johnson, director of the Advanced Manufacturing Office. “This program aligns well with the technical focus areas our office is pursuing in early-stage, applied research and development.”
